Ring stone engraved with a female bust - Orange carnelian

Ring stone engraved with a female bust left.
Orange carnelian. Height 1,1 cm.
Female portrait of the imperial period, characterized by a curly and flat hairstyle, the hair gathered on the top of the head. The style of the hairstyle, very similar to that of the effigies of Fulvia Plautilla (wife of Emperor Caracalla), indicates that the engraving can be placed at that time.
Late 2nd - early 1st century A.D. Roman Empire.
One very slight chip. Excellent style.
